After the numerous prizes and awards won at international film festivals, the incredible short movie “Loved by All – The Story of Apa Sherpa” is now available on the Vimeo channel of Sherpas Cinema. Apa Sherpa holds an extraordinary record: he climbed Mount Everest twenty-one times. This incredible record overshadows the hard reality hiding behind one of the most dangerous and exhausting mountaineering expeditions in the world. Brought up in the remote region of Khumbu, in Nepal, Apa had to drop out of school to start working as a porter at the age of twelve.

 

His dream of becoming a doctor was shattered forever. This is an all too common destiny for Nepalese Sherpas; Apa is trying to change that through his project the Apa Sherpa Foundation, which teaches Nepalese children in the belief that their “dreams can come true only through education and knowledge”..
